Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $5.8 million one-year contract from FlightSafety Services Corporation to manage C-5 aircrew training at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, and provide logistical support for six other training locations.

The contract includes four one-year options that, if exercised, would total $30 million.

The C-5 Aircrew Training System (ATS) program provides total training support for all C-5 pilots, flight engineers, loadmasters and maintenance engine run personnel. In addition to managing the C-5 Training Systems Support Center and formal training unit at Lackland Air Force Base, Lockheed Martin will provide logistical training support at Dover Air Force Base, Del.; Travis Air Force Base, Calif.; Martinsburg Air National Guard Base, W.Va.; Memphis Air National Guard Base, Tenn.; Stewart Air National Guard Base, N.Y.; and Westover Air Reserve Base, Mass.

"Lockheed Martin is proud to provide a robust training program to prepare C-5 aircrews for their critical humanitarian and operational missions," said Jim Weitzel, vice president of training and engineering services in Lockheed Martin's Global Training and Logistics business. "Training is personalized to ensure each student has the skills needed to engage in missions more quickly and affordably."

The scope of work includes managing hardware, software and courseware, maintaining simulator certifications to Air Force specifications and overseeing the operations of the training management system.

Lockheed Martin Global Training and Logistics draws on its legacy of training expertise, including work as prime contractor on U.S. Air Force training programs such as the C-130 Aircrew Training System II, C-130J Maintenance and Aircrew Training System schoolhouses, Aircrew Training and Rehearsal Support II for Special Operations Forces and F-35 Lightning II.

Internationally, Lockheed Martin provides flight training to all three military services in the United Kingdom through the U.K. Military Flying Training System program, as well as to the Republic of Singapore Air Force through the Basic Wings Course program.
